Ryon’s song + character art

Ryon is one of the 3 main characters in Emberhawk—the “invisible spy.

Although Ryon may seem like just a selfish thief or a laid-back jokester at first, he conceals many secrets—from the adorable to the heart-wrenching. Torn between the honor of his birthplace and allegiance to the tribe who accepted him, Ryon plays a crucial role in a war he wants nothing to do with.

His theme song is The Fox by Nickel Creek, which my hubby and I belt out in the car while our 5-year-old excitedly tries to keep up.

Lyrics

The fox went out on a chilly night

He prayed for the moon to give him light

For he’d many a mile to go that night

Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o

He’d many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-o

He ran till he came to the farmer’s pin

The ducks and the geese were kept therein

He said, “A couple of you are gonna grease my chin

Before I leave this leave this town-o, town-o, town-o.

A couple of you are gonna grease my chin before I leave this town-o.”

He grabbed the great goose by the neck

He threw a duck across his back

And he didn’t mind the quack, quack

And the legs all danglin’ down-o, down-o, down-o

He didn’t mind the quack, quack and the legs all dangling down-o

Well, the old gray woman jumped out of bed

Out of the window she popped her head

Crying, “John, John! The great goose is gone

And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o!

John, John! The great goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o!”

He ran till he came to his nice, warm den

And there were the little ones: eight, nine, ten

Sayin’, “Daddy, Daddy! Better go back again

It must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o!

Daddy, Daddy! Go back again, for it must be a mighty fine town-o!”

The fox and his wife, without any strife

They cut up the goose with a fork and a knife

And they never had such a supper in their life

And the little one’s chewin’ on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o

They never had such a supper in their life and the little one’s chewin’ on the bones

Character Art

What do you think of the character art above? I had so much fun making it in Photoshop!

Ryon’s eye color changes depending on how much elemental magic is in his blood. I’m pretty happy with the way the fiery hue turned out here, which is how he might look at the beginning of Emberhawk. 

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
